Think faster on your feet
When our balance fails us we need to react with a quick step in an unanticipated direction. This is as true for athletes as it is for the elderly.
Designed by an Australian physiotherapist and based on the best available evidence from the realms of cognitive science, sports science and falls prevention, CLOCK YOURSELF introduces physical exercises with cognitive exercises, simultaneously, to train psychomotor speed.
All five levels of CLOCK YOURSELF activities are based around an imaginary clock face beneath your feet, so you have 12 intuitive co-ordinates / reference points to step to without needing to wire up mats or sensors.
To set up all you need is about 2m x 2m of space and a smartphone or tablet with functioning audio.
To Clock Yourself means to “clock” your own brain. It guides you to reach your fullest potential in each activity, in a measurable way so that you notice the improvements in your cognitive processing speed and reaction times.

Ratings and Reviews
This is a great little app that has lots of capacity to modify depending on age and goals. It is as challenging as you want it to be, and I’ve had great success using it with clients who need structure, need to practice dual tasking, or need lots of progressive repetition but get bored quickly. I’ve had some lovely success using with mild cognitive impairment eg autism, TBI.
A message from the creator
This app took me 18 months to build and my clients contributed their ideas to make it the fun and clever exercise app it is today.
I'm very proud it is being used worldwide.
I made sure it can be super slow or super fast depending on your needs.
You can choose simple clockface stepping or really challenging brain games.
It was based on solid science with independent clinical trials coming soon.
Useful in sports, geriatrics, ortho, paediatrics, neurological conditions.
Please rate it and help spread the word.
Great for schools too!
I love this app! I use it to break up a lesson and get the students moving. It’s a quick and an easy way to get them refocused and they think it’s fun too which is a bonus.
